Our beloved Nabi (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) mentions the incident of Kifal during the reign of Bani Isra’eel. Kifal lived a life of extravagance and adopted some of the most indecent and lewd ways of living. He was notorious among the people as a womaniser, an adulterer and an immoral person.
The Muslim segment of the Ummah of Nabi (Salallahu Alaihi wa Sallam), is ONE massive family unit, “like one single body”. Viewed against this backdrop, brotherhood (“ukhuwwa”) is an absolutely essential ingredient for success. The call by Allah Ta’ala to hold fast all together “to the rope of Allah” is a clear signal for a strongly united Ummah.
